My simple oil change pump



Mr Goodpump Jr which has amazing suction



My custom cover hole which allows about 95% of the oil to be sucked out

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

I'm guessing you "tap n dyed" this custom hole so that you can close it back up with a screw? If not, can you explain a bit more?

I can see the dipstick in shot. Why not go through the dipstick hole?

The dip stick does NOT go to the bottom of the pan like a modern motor and sucking out oil through a 1/4 OD of 1/8 ID tube is really slow

The motor is mounted at a REALLY steep angle and when i had it out and in the shop that is were the oil pools

All the built in holes will not get much oil out as there placed for a more level install
